Podere Le Boncie Le Trame 2020


Sold Out

“The 2020 Le Trame is fabulous. It’s the sort of wine that can be deceptive at first given its mid-weight structure and understated personality. But the intensity of the flavors and the wine’s persistence reveal themselves pretty quickly. Cedar, pipe tobacco, dried leaves, mint and blood orange play off a core of red-toned fruit. There’s plenty of depth and structure, but all the elements are so well put together that it is easy to look past the wine’s more serious side. Readers who can find the 2020 will not want to hesitate. It is very clearly one of the wines of the vintage. Drinking window: 2025-2040. 96 points

These are the most impressive wines I have tasted from proprietor Giovanna Morganti. Le Boncie is located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the southern part of Chianti Classico. At first, the wines can appear a bit light, but they open beautifully in the glass, showing tremendous persistence, finesse and understated complexity. At times, the 2020s reminded me of Gianfranco Soldera’s Brunellos, but naturally, with the more mid-weight body of Chianti Classico. Sustainable farming and minimalist winemaking are the signatures. I can’t recommend the 2020s highly enough.”
